Awards


College HR encourages all Chairs and Supervisors to nominate deserving staff to University-wide and College-specific awards.

Emory College Service Awards

In 2006, Emory College instituted the Emory College Service Awards to be presented each year in recognition of College employees who complete milestone years of service (multiples of 5 years) at Emory University.

In an annual event held at the end of the summer each year, the Dean of the College publicly recognizes service milestone recipients. All College staff and faculty are invited to the event.

Recipients are determined according to reports received from central HR.

Award of Distinction

This university-wide award is intended to recognize Emory employees for their contributions to the university. All regular, full-time and part-time staff, who have been employed for at least one year are eligible to be nominated for the Award of Distinction. Previous awardees are also eligible. Retirees are not eligible.

Employees not eligible for nomination include faculty, faculty equivalents, librarians, board approved principals and employees of Emory Healthcare.

Nominations can be made by faculty, staff or supervisors and require the endorsement of the head of the department/school/division in which the nominee works. The award is given annually, and the deadline for receiving nominations typically falls in January every year.

Further information regarding the process including the nomination form are available on the Award of Distinction site.
